When the sale of recreational marijuana became legal in Nevada on July 1, so many people came out to blaze it that the governor had to declare a state of emergency to say: we’re running out of weed.
Within the first four days of business, the 47 stores retail marijuana stores conducted more than 40,000 transactions and made around $3 million in sales. The law passed back in November and would allow those 21-years-old and up to purchase up to one ounce of weed.
The part that is slowing down the sales is the distributors. The law gave exclusive rights to liquor distributors to transport the product, but the process has been slow and full of legal blockades.
